Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

SMEG STX dishwasher does not complete the wash cycle, stopping after 3 minutes on all cycles displaying error code E1. The machine seems to start with the usual whirring noise but then stops after 3 minutes without pumping in water. The machine is a few years old now but has needed 2 new control panels already although this does not appear to be the problem this time. Any suggestions? Thanks DW

Cycle counter goes to 1, but continues to agitate, does not pump the water out, nor does it go to zero. The counter will stay on 1 indefinetly, if I use the pump button, there is soap residue in the bottom of the machine. I called the Sears repairman, he was here about 10 minutes, unplugged the machine from the wall and said that probably I had a power surge and that would solve my problem. It did not.

Noisy pump This is supposedly the quietest washing machine. It is until the pump comes into operation. It pumps incessantly for up to ten minutes before the spin operates and it is extremely noisy. I have had an Hotpoint engineer visit and he brusquely said that this is normal. I wouldn't have purchased it if I had known this. My previous Zanussi was much better. Was the engineer correct?


It depends on the design, the way it is mounted on the machine matters a lot.Sometimes pump makes noise due air trapping. Check your water flow. Add 10 liters of water in the chamber direct and close the door. start the machine in usual w ... Dishwashers

My pressure washer starts fine, shoots water OK. After running for 5-10 minutes cleaning siding I shut off machine. I go to start it again within a minute or two and the thing feels like it's just about seized. If i wait until the motor is completely cool, it will pull start freely and start right up. I think something is wrong with the pump, not the engine.

I have a KitchenAid KDS-17E dishwasher, which has worked well since I acquired it second-hand in 1984. Last night it ran continuously, stuck in the prewash part of fullcycle, with water being pumped through the system, and was fairly warm in the morning. It drained normally when I pressed the Cancel/drain button. I tried the machine again in full cycle. After 20 minutes it was still stuck in prewash, with the water temperature about 42 C, so I stopped it. Machine is connected to cold wate

Have a Miele G1220SC dishwasher. It recently developed a strange problem: when switching it on ALL program lights come on and the machine starts taking water. after a while it stops taking water and starts to pump water, all the time all program indicators remain on. if you leave it on a while ( about 4 or 5 minutes) it is impossible to switch off the machine with the main switch, all you can do to stop it is unplug it. anyone experienced something like this and have any idea what part is malfun

Hello, I have a problem with our Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher. It starts its cycle OK, draining out any residual water, taking in fresh water and doing the initial rinse. After about 5 minutes it then stops with the "inlet/drain" red light flashing. The detergent is still in the holder and the water is still cold.

When washing in auto mode it seems to take forever but does eventually stop, and I've noticed that when opened the time to go indicator can vary quite a lot (sometime goes backwards in that if you wait ten minutes and look again, it's saying it's going to take longer than it did before) I have replaced the pump in the past so I know how to dismantle the machine.
